Last month, the podcasts reflected on her experience with the marriage and shared the advice she would give Jack.

“I do not know if it is too grumpy and cruel to say in a way, but if I could tell my 8-year-old son one thing that he might want to hold on to, I would really encourage him not to get married in 20s, ”Faris said in an episode of his podcast with Glennon Doyle.
